HistoryEdit

The Yugoslav U18 team represented the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia until the country dissolved in 1992.

From 1995, the under-18 team represented the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The FR Yugoslavia (and the team) changed its name to Serbia and Montenegro in 2003.

In 2006, Serbia and Montenegro separated and its governing body converted into the Football Association of Serbia.

Competition historyEdit

Their first international competition was on the 1951 FIFA Youth Tournament Under-18 where they beat Austria 3-2 in the final.

They also won the 1979 UEFA European Under-18 Championship beating Bulgaria 1–0 in the final.

The biggest success on the intercontinental stage happened on the 1987 FIFA World Youth Championship in Chile, when they became the world youth champions by beating the West Germany 5–4 in the final on a penalty shootout in Santiago. Because of that achievement, that generation was nicknamed Čileanci (The Chileans).

Since the changes in 2001. made by UEFA, when the competition received its current name and level (U19), the Serbian squad has reached the semifinals in 2005, 2009, 2011, and 2014.

In the 2013 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, the Serbian team became the European champion by beating France 1–0 in the final played in Marijampolė.

The semifinal appearance in 2014 qualified them for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Competitive RecordEdit

The Serbian Football Association is deemed the direct successor to both SFR Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro by FIFA, and therefore the inheritor to all the records of the defunct nations.
